I listen to podcasts fairly frequently. It seems there is a podcast for everything on every level. I’ll put a podcast on at nearly any time. I have that luxury that I can put on a podcast when I’m working, cooking, or when I’m cleaning. I’m always wearing headphones, and listening to something, and a lot of times it is a podcast.

Monday Morning Podcast

The Monday Morning Podcast is the first podcast I really got into.Before this one, I honestly thought podcasts were dumb. At the time I got into this podcast, I was in need of a laugh. I found a comedian I liked, and just threw his stuff on youtube, and left it on auto-play.Eventually, it just started playing clips from the podcast, and I switched over.

Bill Burr is a stand up comedian, and his podcast is just him rambling.It sounds awful, but it is outstanding.Burr has no one to lean on during his podcast, so he ends up just talking about what is going on in his life. For example, doing work on his house becomes hilarious as he vents frustration with how much he hates the person who owned the house before him.Because Burr has legendary storytelling and delivery because of his profession, it is really easy to listen to.


InvestTalk helps people in the stock market, with their retirement, financial planning, and just evaluating their holdings.

This is a great place to start when you’re learning to invest in the market a bit more actively. Sure you can look online and see what all of those numbers and statistics mean, but numbers don’t tell the whole story.Different sectors of the market have different behaviors, and by using the same criteria to evaluate all of them isn’t the greatest thing. The reason you would listen to this podcast is to start learning.If you knew everything that was being discussed, you wouldn’t want to listen.

Backyard Booking Podcast

The Backyard Booking Podcast is hosted by Jake and Thoma – two guys in their mid 20’s out of the Pittsburgh area. They don’t have a huge following, and you won’t see them being talked about anywhere.Their podcast is focused on, but not limited to professional wrestling. But a lot of time, it is just two good friends making each other laugh.

I really enjoy listening to this.Jake and Thoma clearly have known each other a long time, and have similar senses of humor.I’m not a huge fan of pro wrestling anymore, There are times where they’ll be talking about things that I know nothing about, yet I still find it entertaining.They’ll throw a call back in there to the world of pro wrestling which helps me understand or just laugh. They’re not censored, they’re not answering to anyone, they’re not pandering – it is just entertaining and easy to listen to.

Have a Project

Not everyday can be perfect and all sunshine. There are always days that are going to be a bit of a downer. It is important to have something to look forward to in the near future. I don't mean a week, or a month. While it is important to have those as well, having something a bit further can help you to work toward something, and keep you a bit more disciplined.

Or maybe it is just me. I'm going to bed.

Keep moving

It amazes me how fast time has been moving lately. Weeks used to feel like forever, and now they feel like only a couple of days. Months feel more like weeks than four of them.

It is important to take some time here and there to take a little bit of time here and there and make sure that you're on track, making progress, and so on. It is easy to confuse busy with productive.

So since the milestone of launching, some of the things I've focused on witht he project have changed. Blogs may be a bit less, but there will be other little things that come out. I'm looking forward to getting things moving.

It Is All Happening!

It is all happening! I've finally gotten this to a point where I'm releasing it. I know there are bugs, there are holes, not enough content,and other things that suck from a presentation standpoint. I'm not 100% pleased with the architecture of it either...


If the first step at being good at something is sucking, then making something good has to suck at first. I like some things about the site. It is about something amazing. I like that I've got a general layout set, and the information layout is good. It leaves a lot of flexibility for me. I love that it exists, and isn't just a longstanding placeholder. I like how I'll be able to work on it and release changes when I'm ready.

So it is a bit of a milestone for me to finally launch this thing, and I'm really happy with where I'm at with it right now. If you find suggestions, or issues with it, talk to Diesel about it as he's more interested in listening to you than I am.

I've been cooking a lot more lately. I went into the grocery store today, and saw fresh salmon filets were on sale. I actually got excited. Just a few months ago, I would have walked right past it. I didn't really enjoy salmon. But now that I have tried it a few times, and a few different ways, I get excited.

Every time you hear about healthy foods, salmon is in there. I think that was a major reason why I was so determined to enjoy salmon. There's a few foods that are like that - always mentioned as healthy, but not something I would have enjoyed a few years ago. Salmon, sweet potatoes, and kale are just a few of the foods that I would put in that category.

As a kid, I hated fish. My mom loved it. I tried it a few times, but I just always remember it like it was cold and slimey. I remember frozen fish sticks and just being disappointed with them all the time. With salmon as I sit down, I can feel the warmth from the filet as I effortlessly use the side of my fork to break a piece off. Then the steam comes off from the inside. Good stuff.
